Wurzelmania comes to Gloucester
The legends of the West Country - now here's a band who really need no introduction.
can forget those timeless classics - "Combine Harverster" and "I am a
Cider Drinker". For some of us they bring back happy memories of students bars and
parties. Oh they were such easy words to sing along to - very loudly, while clutching a pint of cider......
The haystack-headed, cider soaked and dung-booted, not quite so young
Avonside lads are still going strong although the line-up may have
changed a little along the way. Originally founded in 1966 by the now
legendary Adge Cutler who sadly died in 1974 the band are responsible
for the invention of "Scrumpy and Western" and a strange new dialect
list of songs cannot fail to make you chuckle just by reading their
title - "I'd love to Swim in the Zuider Zee", "Faggots is the Stuff"
and "The Champion Dung Spreader".
The Wurzels will be performing at the Guildall, Gloucester on 1 February.
